AJ's Fine Foods Wikipedia
AJ's Fine Foods, formerly known as AJ Bayless, is a supermarket chain formerly headquartered in Phoenix, Arizona. It went through a bankruptcy in the late 1980s. It was acquired by Bashas’ in 1993. Under Bashas' ownership, AJ's has positioned itself as an upscale gourmet and specialty grocery chain (with each store located in more affluent neighborhoods in the Phoenix and Tucson areas). The stores feature chef-prepared entrees, an extensive wine collection with trained cellar staff, and specialty baked goods.
Some of the AJ Bayless locations in middle-class and blue-collar neighborhoods were converted to Bashas' Food City format.
